Over-the-Top (OTT) TV service is a linear TV service (where all programs are fixed by a schedule) delivered via the Internet.
OTT TV service differs from OTT video service in that the latter offers piece-meal content while the former offers a complete line-up of content on a daily basis.
OTT TV service can be accessed via web browsers, mobile apps or streamed via gaming consoles, special media players or set-top boxes that are able to stream IP-based content to traditional or non-connected viewing gadgets such as home TV sets.
OTT TV service can be provided by pure OTT TV providers, or can be provided as the online channel of an existing cable and satellite TV channel.
Most OTT TV services are offered as a premium service and incur a subscription fee. Subscription tenures range from daily to monthly to annual subscription.
Subscribers of an OTT TV service can access their channels from any Internet-connected device, and from anywhere, except in places where the service is disabled.
